I suspect this is a SECRET sale because i couldnt find any results for it when I searched the model number on mc's website. i only found the models website page thru google

top middle of the weekly ad

Is this THE cheapest new (non-refurb) laptop out there now? Correct me if I am wrong but I sure think so. it beat all the new laptop deals on, say, bb, Amazon, frys, etc. in terms of CHEAPEST new laptop.

2GB is barely passable
I'd upgrade memory. So figure another $40-50 for that.

You would be surprised. I have 4GB in an Acer Aspire One 722 with C-60 CPU Netbook/Ultralight Notebook (not really a Netbook, but has no DVD drive). I never use more than about 2GB it seems, even though I have 4 installed. That's with Windows 7. It seems to run out of CPU poop before it runs out of RAM.

Edit: Also, I would watch out for these ultra-cheap Asus -brand laptops. They don't seem to be designed with serviceability in mind. I recently picked up an X401 model at BB for $299.99 + tax. I watched a disassembly video on YouTube, you have to take the whole keyboard off just to get at the HD, and you have to take the whole motherboard out, just to get at the RAM.

For those reasons alone, I would consider Asus laptops to be "disposable".

Both my Asus laptops are service friendly one is a G50v the other a K50I. Neither is a real pain to work on. So thanks for the heads up " watch out for these ultra-cheap Asus -brand laptops." Having to take out the MB to replace the RAM my be a deal killer for some.
